Postecoglou concerned about pitch

Brisbane coach Ange Postecoglou is concerned a bumpy Suncorp Stadium pitch could ruin Sunday's A-League grand final clash with Perth Glory.

With the Queensland Reds scheduled to play the Stormers in a Super Rugby game on Friday night, Postecoglou said the heavy traffic had the potential to spoil the biggest day on the A-League's calender.

Officials are expecting 50,000 fans to watch the A-League final with the Roar attempting to win back-to-back championships following their unforgettable penalty shootout victory against Central Coast 12 months ago.

"It (the pitch) is a big concern," said Postecoglou, of a Suncorp Stadium surface showing signs of wear and tear.

"They're playing rugby union here on Friday and they've got an academy game (curtain raiser) too.

"If they could take one game off it would help reduce the traffic.

"It's not just for us, but for Perth as well, it's our showpiece game."

Postecoglou, who's been linked to a four-year, $1 million a season deal with Melbourne Victory, said while his players were disappointed to lose Tuesday night's ACL clash with Ulsan Hyundai 2-1 they would pick themselves up for Sunday's grand final against Perth.
